Barbecue Challenge Judging Information

Judging registration is NOW OPEN! If you would like to be a judge at this year's Best Dam Barbecue Challenge, please register through the KCBS website by CLICKING HERE.

Select "The Best Dam Barbeque" and you will be able to register using the "Judge Application" button.

Because we believe strongly that a quality competition requires the highest standards in judging, we strive to use 100% KCBS certified judges at our event.

Applications from certified barbecue judges will be confirmed on a first-come, first served basis, so we encourage early application. Non-certified applicants may apply to be placed on a standby list.
